All that I wanted when I was small (and all I did for a while) was to dance. Through an early and quick series of painful events, dance was nearly ruined for me entirely, but I have never not-known that it was at my core. My fixation on dance and ballet has always remained. I see ballet as a large metaphor for what we ask women (and men, but less so) to do and be in our culture, which is why I find this video fairly thrilling. It’s like The Red Shoes, but taken to the next level.
